Perhaps because he's been sooooo busy shipping guns to the drug cartels, pushing show trials for terrorists, warning of the dangers posed by conservative military veterans, and defending voter-intimidating Black Panthers, Attorney General Eric Holder seems to have missed some major criminal activity taking place in...his Department of Justice.
According to a new report from the Inspector General's office, the Justice Department under Eric Holder has spent over $120 million on a number of "law enforcement conferences" around the country with wildly extravagant expenses being charged to America's already cash-strapped taxpayers.
$4000 for a tray of 250 muffins (at $16 each), catered lunches which cost $76 each, Crackerjack for $32 per person, $10 cookies, and Swedish meatballs that cost $5 each - and we don't even want to think about how much the toothpicks cost.
This is the kind of criminal waste of money which makes people roll their eyes when Barack Obama declares that government budgets are already tight, and that he will veto any budget cuts unless taxes are raised.
For now, Hope n' Change would like to suggest that the next time Mr. Holder schedules a conference on how to conduct full body scans, he worries less about making sure all the attendees leave with "full bodies."
And Barack Obama should spend $32 on one last box of Crackerjack to see if the prize inside is a decent Attorney General.
He could hardly do worse.
